From James Hicks:

Cherokee Myths, pg 74, "...Cap John Beard attacks... killing several including the wife of Hanging Maw."

Old Frontiers, John P Brown, pg 386; [June 12, 1793, at a gathering of Chiefs in Coyatee at Hanging Maw's]... Scantee, Fool Charlie and Betty, a daughter of Kitegista, were killed. [Hanging Maw's widow, Betsy, was still alive in 1799, and thus not the same person as Betsy Kitegusta.]
